Here is my best explanation:

'lying' is the definition.
(thesaurus)

'prosecute to restrict member' is the subsidiary indication.
'prosecute' becomes 'sue' (I've seen this before).
'to restrict' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'member' becomes 'pin' (pin is a kind of member).
'sue' enclosing 'pin' is 'supine'.

'that's' is the link.
